One of the must-see places in Tokyo! Really calm an peaceful. You can also get to see Japanese wedding if you go on weekends and get lucky! Founded in 1920 in dedication to Emperor Meiji who opened Japan to the West, Meiji Shrine has attracted the largest number of New Year's visitors in Japan for 34 consecutive years. This is the Tokyo's most famous Shinto shrine but less of a tourist trap than other famous shrines like Sensoji. Torii gate at the entrance is made of 1,500-year-old cypress, and there is nothing like this at any other shrines. There is also Treasure Museum inside the property, which is an Important Cultural Property of Japan. On Sunday mornings, there are usually traditional wedding procession (or two) through the courtyard. Shrines can get interesting on spacial occasions.

Very nice shrine. If you go on the weekend you'll most likely see a wedding going on. There were two weddings when we went. Loved the two large trees inside. The walk to the shrine is beautiful. The crunching of foot steps on the gravel pathways take away the peacefulness of the walk though.
